My Tangible Life

exploring the good things in life

About Me

I’m just an average person seeking truth and beauty in this world.

I believe sincerely that, as Isabel Allende said, ‘you can tell the deepest truths with the lies of fiction’.  I am passionate about good books and great movies. I’ve found it’s the easiest way for me to understand and talk about the things I care about.

I don’t believe I have anything particularly new or revelatory to say about any of this, but I want a space to say it anyway.

My interests are varied. I love classic black and white films and the latest new release.  I love a corny romantic comedy as much as an enigmatic arthouse film.  I love science fiction and stories set in the past.

I am trying (and usually failing) to read more non-fiction.

I love good food and drink.

Friends and family are the cornerstone of my life.

Travel is another passion of mine.  I believe nothing broadens the mind like getting out of one’s comfort zone.

The purpose here is to chronicle my attempts to live a more tangible life –  a life I can touch and feel, a life I can be proud of, a life full of family, friends, books, cooking, eating, drinking, traveling, learning, etc.
